How did you do it?
by Alvar Lagerlöf on Saturday October 20th 2018, 11:04
I tried installing with this:

Then I installed the extra libs with winetricks. But the game does no longer launch. Can you provide more details on how you made it work?

I have not used lutris before and have not tested other services, like Play on Linux, etc ... What version Wine are you using? I'm only installing clean wine wine-3.17-162 according to the instructions + some libraries listed here in my comments. Therefore, I can advise you to do the same now. Check that your version Wine of the is not older than that indicated here. Or you can try contacting lutris support.
PS.: I looked at the installation script at and saw that another game installer was used there: .1.exe
But now we are testing the PTU version and another installer is used there ... When the PTU period is completed, I think everything should work.
Installation of additional libraries for wine

If you build wine also as i, may be you also need this libraries. I'm build my wine using this instruction: Here are the additional libraries that I installed via apt-get:
libmpg123-0:i386 libxml2:i386 libasn1-8-heimdal:i386 libgssapi3-heimdal:i386 libhcrypto4-heimdal:i386 libheimbase1-heimdal:i386 libheimntlm0-heimdal:i386 libhx509-5-heimdal:i386 libkrb5-26-heimdal:i386 libroken18-heimdal:i386 libwind0-heimdal:i386 libsasl2-modules-gssapi-heimdal:i386
For working crash handler (reporting)
by Alexandr on Thursday October 18th 2018, 16:33
In order for the crash handler (report) to work, it took me:
Install the following packages using Winetricks: dotnet40, dotnet45, dbghelp.
Change, using the winecfg, operating system to a newer. (after installing these packages, it self changed to windows 2003)
I'm changed it back, to windows 7
